Nestled behind the Endless Mountains in Luzerne County, the rolling hills of the Back Mountain are a scenic blend of Pennsylvania's natural beauty and history. Adjacent to the anthracite coal regions of Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties, the Back Mountain includes Kingston Township, Trucksville, Shavertown, Dallas, Huntsville, Lehman, and Harvey's Lake. Historically, the area offered many forms of recreation and entertainment, which brought tourists from all over the Northeast. Harvey's Lake is the largest natural lake in Pennsylvania, and it became a major resort destination in the early twentieth century. "Pennsylvania's Back Mountain," by Harrison Wick, is a compilation of rare photographs documenting this historic community and revealing a bygone era of amusement parks, hotels, railroads, and steamboats. Presented at IUP. Harrison Wick is the IUP Special Collections librarian and university archivist. Find more information about "Pennsyvania's Back Mountain" at www.amazon.com The Breakfast-and-a-Book speaker series features IUP faculty members discussing their published books with the university community.

We traveled to Philadelphia to perform at the University of Pennsylvania. ....and to look for love, of course. Our main goal in Philly, however, was to climb the famous stairs from the movie "Rocky." Since we were children, this has been the one thing we've always wanted to do. The second half of this video is a clip from our show at upenn. But, since we were sharing the stage with a cappella group Off the Beat, we decided to do something a little difference for our performance...

While visiting with a friend's family, the kids attended this Book Fair / Festival in Hamlin, PA. To encourage reading, the Salem Township Library held this fair in which the kids were awarded tokens for the books they read. The tokens in turn were used to play games, get food / snacks and make crafts. It was fun!

Part 3: The Public Library (California, Washington County)In 1958, a group of women persuaded the Pennsylvania Railroad to give away their deteriorating train station so it could be transformed into a public library. They soon decided they'd also like their very own caboose. Requests were mailed to 18 railroad companies until finally Norfolk Southern offered to help. Today children's activities are held in the library's "Little Red Caboose." In the early 1900s, travelers could go anywhere by train. America's train stations provided a doorway to the world, becoming the heart of each community. They were part of everyday life serving as a backdrop for many mileposts in our country's history. From these stations, loved ones tearfully said goodbye as soldiers departed for two World Wars and cheered these heroes on their return. Presidential candidates criss-crossed the country bringing their message to the people from each station's platform. Pennsylvania Train Stations -- Restored and Revitalized takes viewers on an unconventional journey to uncover the richness of these beautiful memorials to railroading and meet the people who saved them. Produced by Penn State Public Broadcasting, this film captures the charm and nostalgic beauty of stations brought back to life in exciting and unusual ways.
